Akon’s record company abuses DMCA to stifle criticism on YouTube

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 3, 2007 04:52 PM

Gone. This morning, I linked to the YouTube version of our Hot Air show exposing hip-hop misogynist Akon. The YouTube version is no longer available. This is the message you will now see: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Universal Music Group.” We believe our commentary and criticism of […]

Anti-Hillary YouTuber confesses

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 22, 2007 09:24 AM

You’ve already seen the stories about the Obama-linked video consultant who was unmasked as the creator the anti-Hillary Big Sister ad. Here’s his confessional at HuffPo, “I made the ‘Vote Different’ Ad:” Let me be clear: I am a proud Democrat, and I always have been. I support Senator Obama. I hope he wins the […]

YouTube banned in Turkey

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 7, 2007 06:42 PM

Well, this is an interesting twist. YouTube, known in these parts for banning those who insult Islam, is now being banned for carrying videos that insult Turkey: A court in Turkey on Wednesday ordered blockage of all access to YouTube, the popular video-sharing Web site, over a video deemed insulting to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the […]

The Jerusalem Post follows up: Over the past few weeks, those who track the use of media by terror groups have noted a strong trend among Iraqi insurgents to distribute their propaganda movies and violence footage not through fringe, hard-to-find websites, but by uploading them directly to popular video sharing sites such as YouTube. Many […]

A message for YouTube

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 21, 2007 12:21 PM

Please correct the record on our yanked anti-jihad videos. They were not “removed by the user.” They were removed by you. Discussion at Hot Air. *** Previous: Dhimmitude at YouTube, again YouTube: Time’s invention of the year YouTube and the cyberjihad Google plus YouTube equals… YouTube’s slippery slope Fighting jihad at YouTube Banned on YouTube […]

Dhimmitude at YouTube, again

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 12, 2007 09:40 AM

There’s a new member of the Banned By YouTube club. He’s Nick Gisburne, an atheist who posts videos criticizing religion. He had no trouble uploading anti-Christian monologues to YouTube. But when he criticized Islam by quoting the Koran? YouTube account deleted. (You can seen the banned video at his site.) Here’s Gisburne’s latest video (not […]

Iran bans YouTube & Amazon.com & even the NYTimes website

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2006 11:21 PM

Like I said earlier today, information wants to be free. And freedom is something Iran is just not going to tolerate. Via The Guardian (hat tip: Greg Tinti): Iran yesterday shut down access to some of the world’s most popular websites. Users were unable to open popular sites including Amazon.com and YouTube following instructions to […]

YouTube threatens blogger…over copyright infringement

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 15, 2006 10:01 PM

YouTube (which never seems to respond to e-mail from customers) sent out a cease-and-desist letter to top tech blogger Michael Arrington of TechCrunch: Buried in my email this evening I found a cease and desist letter from an attorney at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, representing their client YouTube. We’ve been accused of a number […]

Gangs using YouTube to recruit

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 13, 2006 10:13 AM

Jihadists do it. Why not gang-bangers? (via Boston Herald/hat tip – Brian Maloney) One gang in Boston is using a new way to recruit – YouTube. Luckily, the self-proclaimed Bloods gangbangers from “M.O.B. Charlestown Bricks” look too stupid in their highly rated home movie on the popular Web site to actually attract new members. “Who […]

Debunking a YouTube moonbat

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 11, 2006 08:08 PM

An unhinged anti-Bush conspiracy piece on YouTube posted by one Mike McIntee claims that the White House doctored the video of Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech. Here it is: It was uploaded the day before the election and has received nearly 200,000 visits and counting, plus countless honors. The problem is that this “Bush Lied!” propaganda […]

YouTube: Time’s invention of the year

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 6, 2006 09:04 PM

Lavish praise for YouTube from Time magazine: It’s been an interesting year in technology. Nintendo invented a video game you control with a magic wand. A new kind of car traveled 3,145 miles on a single gallon of gas. A robot learned to ride a bike. Somebody came up with a nanofabric umbrella that doesn’t […]

YouTube and the cyberjihad

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2006 08:57 AM

The Washington Times takes up the fight. The dynamic Brigitte Gabriel talks about YouTube and jihad here. Ragnar at the Jawa Report is doing battle. Noel Sheppard reports on YouTube, Google, and the Liberal Bias Virus. The good news: The conservative YouTubers group now numbers nearly 4,000. The bad: We still are trailing the Bush […]

Google plus YouTube equals…

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 9, 2006 04:48 PM

…more trouble for conservative users, if Google News’s and Google execs’ campaign donations records are any indication. Here’s the official word on the buyout: Google Inc. (GOOG) snapped up YouTube Inc. for $1.65 billion Monday in deal that catapults the Internet search leader to a leading role in the online video revolution. The all-stock acquisition […]

YouTube’s slippery slope

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 9, 2006 02:32 PM

Tom Zeller Jr. at the New York Times saw fit to write about the jihad vs. anti-jihad battle at YouTube today. Not only does he appear to agree that banning “First, They Came” was a bad idea, but he also, unlike his colleague Virginia Heffernan (who inspired my new tagline), manages to cover the story […]

Fighting jihad at YouTube

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 6, 2006 11:40 AM

If you’ve had an anti-jihad video pulled from YouTube, feel free to sport the badge on your site (thanks to AllahPundit). I like the Jawa Report’s take on a new YouTube logo, too (credit Ragnar). Welcome to AllahTube: That one’s very appropriate given today’s piece in the NYTimes on the proliferation of jihadi propaganda on […]

Banned on YouTube

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 4, 2006 11:28 AM

Back in February, you may remember, I cobbled together a little mini-movie called “First, They Came” inspired by the Mohammed Cartoon riots. It’s a simple slideshow highlighting the victims of Islamic violence over the years. We posted it at YouTube a while ago. No problems. Until last week, when I received this e-mail: I asked […]
